We hadn't intended to visit the museum, but were glad we did. There are some lovely collections there, all the better for being complete. I loved the "Mona Lisa" of the toy world. It has to be seen.

The exhibition is amazing, but the attitude of the staff was disgusting, careless and even violent. I came there with my handicapped 6- year old daughter in a wheelchair. I can understand that there is no elevator and they can't solve this problrem immediately, so I was ready to carry her on stairs to the f 4th floor. But... when... More

My family (two adults and a preschooler) ran through the museum in about 30 minutes. The price for a family to enter was around $6. If your kids are big into Barbie, they would probably consider the place pretty interesting. It is a true museum. The toys are behind glass.

We went to the toy museum to escape the rain when at the castle the entrance fee was very cheap! Good selection of toys some of them v v old we really enjoyed looking round. Don't miss the barbie section up the stairs that is the best bit! Hundreds of barbies from past and present!

Fantastic little museum in the Prague Castle grounds. Interesting to see some of the toys from the Communist Era as well as plenty of other things that anyone will remember from their childhood. Good value admission cost as well.

The wife didn't want to go in but I said it only cost a couple of pounds (or less) what was there to lose? She agreed and enjoyed it. We spent about 30 minutes browsing the cases and then went upstairs to see the Barbies. I had a look for a couple of minutes but she was stuck up there... More

It is interesting to see the evolvement of the toys across centuries and what is more interesting is the upper floor where you see the history of barbie. But i'd have prefered it were more organized in a story kind of way. It is nice to visit anyway while strolling down from the castle

The toy museum is a gem that's hidden in plain sight. Inside the Prague Castle grounds, the two flights of stairs you have to climb to get into it is well worth it. Lots of antique toys and things that many of us had never seen before. If you're a fan of Barbie, you absolutely cannot go wrong but there... More

Staying in Hradcany & Letna

Neighborhood Profile
Hradcany & Letna
Your experience in Prague will never be complete if you do not see it from the top. Hillsides, stretched from the west to the north, provide spectacular views of greenish copper cupolas, narrow cobblestone streets, bridges connecting both river banks and green gardens from red-roof tops of centuries-old houses. Prague pulls you into its 1300 year old history. Walking up the hill or stairs to Prague Castle, the historical seat of Czech rulers and the majestic Saint Vitus Cathedral can leave you speechless (and out of breath). Luckily, plenty of terrace cafés overlooking gardens and beautiful parks are available to provide rest and a place to catch your breath again.
